AQUAview: Ryan Lochte
Jeremy Piven Goes On A Run

Ugh. Insomnia and Swimming.

I don't know why but I couldn't sleep last night.  I tried and I even took 2 Tylenol PM's.  I watched a marathon of Season One of the canceled Showtime show "Dead Like Me".  I figured I'd fall asleep at some point.  Then around 4:40am I realized sleep wasn't happening so I made myself frozen waffles and some tea.  Time to get up and read the morning paper. 

On my way to swim I made a pit stop to the post office to send out some rentals back before the 6am pickup.  This ads a few blocks to my bike ride so no big deal.  I left a bit too early as I got to the pool before the lifeguard was even there.  Of course the lifeguard was late but I was also too early.

Warm up was pretty simple I did around a 450.  We all goofed off and chatted it up.

Then we did a warm up set.

200 Kick
50 Drill Free
50 Swim Free
200 Kick
50 Drill Free
50 Swim Free

Main Free Set:
400 on 5:15 Pull
2x200's on 2:35 Swim
3x100's on 1:15 Swim
4x50's on 50 Swim

Main Stroke Set:
400 IM 50 kick / 25 drill / 25 swim no interval
2x200's IM on 3:10
3x100's IM on 1:45
3x50's (we ran out of time)  we did 1 fly, 1 back and 1 free.

And that was it.  Not too difficult.  I was feeling really good during the free set.  Not that I was feeling bad in the IM part but just felt better in the free.  Not bad for someone who didn't sleep!  Now I can rest for a bit.  But not after I watch the final episode of season one of Dead Like Me.  Then it's on to the 2nd and last season.


I've being researching about Insomnia and reading your blog, I found your post very helpful :) . I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading.

I enjoyed watching that show - it was an interesting premise.
